      Conjugated   pentacene dimers 13 were   synthesized in two steps from readily available precursors.   Noteworthy is the initial step, which assembles five independent   fragments to form the carbon-rich molecular framework.   Solution-cast films of these materials are air stable.   Photocurrent measurements for solution-deposited thin films show   that dimer 3 exhibits photoconductive gain   >10.
